Cabin 7 is small and in very wooded area, forest I grew around here. If you don’t want to be in Forrest surrounded by trees then may be this one is not for you.
“Fuschia is a special experience. Set amongst beautiful tea plantations in the Kotogiri highlands overlooking a stunning waterfall, the property is an oasis of tranquility in often chaotic India. Although the accommodation is somewhat basic, the food and hospitality are outstanding. Baby is an excellent cook, Ishwaran helps in any way required in taking care of the property while Shanti maintains the rooms. Sharan, the owner, has a genuine passion for preserving local nature and truly cares about contributing to the local people. It was a pleasure to get to know Sharan and his crew and we loved our experiences around the campfire and family style dinner table. If you are looking for a genuine back to nature experience supported by caring local people Fuschia is for you.”
Please read main listing for Fuschia Kotagiri to get detailed description. All details are exactly the same except cabin # 5 is smaller but still comes with king size bed and sleeps two adults. Your food cost per couple will be apx 1200 Rs, which includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s totally worth it given location etc. If you choose not to partake in meals, your cost will be less.. if you are city people please dong come here, not good match. I totally respect you time off from work.
“This place is a heaven on earth. We spent 3 days here but would have loved to spend more than a week at least. Amidst of tea plantations this place has a waterfall, a pond and above all, fresh air. It's just amazing to wake up in the arms of mother nature and experience the mesmerising sunrise along with songful chirping of birds. As Sharan has already mentioned much about the place, so don't expect lavish restaurants and luxury hotel services here. Rooms are very clean and they have a variety of room sizes to cater different people. The kitchen is open and we can make full use of it. I must say the food provided by Ishwar and Baby is really delicious. Baby's veg biryani was awesome. There is a nice sitting area and a small set of books which we can read. We can spend time chit chatting here. Sharan has a lot of stories that can keep you involved. There is a chess board and Sharan has recently arranged a carom board, probably we inaugurated it. In addition to so many good things this place is pet friendly. Thanks Sharan for this, today's generation hardly knows how to live with other creatures. Because of your place we could take our pet child along, who had so much of free space to enjoy and have fun. She made friends in blacky and browny(the two pups already in Fuschia). Thanks Fuschia, Sharan, Baby, Ishwar, Blacky and Browny. We will be back soon.”
We are family looking forward to hosting you at a comfortable and cozy house that is set amidst a carpet of green, overlooked by dense forest and the occasional witness to wildlife such as the Indian Gaur and the Barking Deer. With ample space to go on walks, treks and taking in nature, this is an ideal place for a blissful weekend getaway!
“I spent seven glorious nights at Mr Jacob's place in Kotagiri. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to take it easy, recharge your batteries and experience the beautiful mountain weather of Coonoor/Kotagiri. The apartment is clean, has a great view of the tea plantation, and its deck is terrific to see the sunrise and the night stars. The kitchen has a fridge, a microwave and a water filter and met most of my needs. I did not have a car for the week and decided to walk everywhere. The nearest village is 2 kms away and takes 15-20mins to get to on foot. I did rent a car one day to see the sights of Coonoor, and that worked out wonderfully. Mr and Mrs Jacob are lovely hosts, and I would recommend (almost insist) that you eat all your meals in their house. It's simple, elegant, tasty Indian cooking at its best. Someone from the family almost always sits with you while you eat, and you can find out more about life in Kotagiri. Mr Stephen Jacob was kind enough to drive me to Kodanad Sunrise Point for a brilliant sunrise. Doorba ji, the housekeeper, went above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable, and I am grateful for that. I enjoyed my interactions with Shawn (whose photographs are lovely and all over the house) and Yohan, and they were wonderful, friendly boys who are talented and kind human beings. I went on a morning hike with Anthony anna to a nearby hill, and it was delightful. But undoubtedly, my favourite part of the week I spent there was spending time with the two dogs. Pax, who is a 3-year-old Rottweiler and Ira is a 3-month-old Labrador, and they completely captured my heart. They are the sweetest dogs in the world, and if you like spending time with dogs, Pax and Ira will make the stay worth it on their might. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience warm hospitality, lovely people and beautiful pets. The view is just the icing on the cake. I can't wait to go back and relive my week.”
